• Steven Spielberg will direct a modern version of the movie Bullitt.
• The director has tabbed Bradley Cooper to play the title role.
• The new Bullitt won’t be a remake, strictly speaking, but you can bet it will feature a memorable car chase.
Of all the films about cars that have attained cult status, right at the top sits Bullitt, released in 1968. The movie starred Steve McQueen, but the iconic actor’s star turn is only of the elements that have made the movie a classic. A certain car chase found somewhere near the end of the movie took it to mythic status.
